FOLLOW THE ROMANS!

April 23, 2015

To coincide with our 10th birthday we have moved to a new office base in Felsted just a few miles west of our former office in Braintree. Our new home is on the old Roman road, Staine Street,  that once connected the area with Colchester. Instead of a Roman Chariot it was a trusty Ford truck that carried our belongings along the Dunmow Road to our new base at Exhibit House just past the former Sailing Oak junction.

Brendan Warner our Fostering Manager praised staff and their partners in completing the move in record time. Brendan said “We owe a great deal to the Braintree Enterprise Centre for all their help with both establishing and expanding our business. North Essex has proved a good location for us being within an hour’s  drive  to much of our catchment area in London and East Anglia. We have continued to expand at a sustainable pace so needed more space and to be just a little closer to the M11 corridor. We have also been fortunate in recruiting a first class staff team who all live locally” Also many of our suppliers are local companies and keeping it local has always been an essential part of our philosophy.”

As well as an office base Exhibit House will provide facilities  for both training and all important support group meetings for our foster carers. Brendan commented “We ran a series of preparation groups for prospective foster carers and they were all impressed with the high quality of the training and the homely welcoming feel of our new home

In readiness for the move Exhibit House has been completely re-furbished. The agency are keen to do their bit for the environment so a high standard of insulation has been included in the works. Michelle Phillips Administrator commented that the atmosphere within the building sends out a clear message that staff, carers and visitors feel valued”
